Diabetes is not curable, but it is manageable. With proper management, people with diabetes can keep their costs, health risks, quality of life, and productivity very close to those without the disease. Unfortunately, diabetes education is not always readily available to those who need it.
The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service is pleased to offer the Do Well, Be Well with Diabetes (DWBW) educational program in Angelina County. DWBW is a five-class series covering basic nutrition and self-care management topics. The program helps people with type 2 diabetes learn the skills needed to manage their disease successfully with the primary goal of improving blood glucose management.
Participants will get their questions answered by diabetes experts and professional educators and gain confidence in their ability to control their disease. The DWBW curriculum is consistent with the American Diabetes Association Standards of Care.
Classes will be held each Tuesday at 6-8 pm from September 8th through Oct 6th at the TLLTemple Memorial Library in Diboll. Cost is $15 to attend all 5 classes. A limited number of scholarships are available to those needing financial assistance on a first-come, first-serve basis. Register by September 2nd to reserve your spot.
